About 30 families, including Carlos, live at the landfill, searching for recyclables to sell for a living. Some residents there were undomumented immigrants who were caught and deported by the United States back to Mexico. They have received aid from the non-profit Home of Hope and Peace, which plans to expand it's assistance to the dump's impoverished populace in the future. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
